Mandeville, LA - DeceptiCON n. An individual in the employ of media billionaires that promote and defend statism as an antidote to statism
Karl Rove has long been the Dark Lord of the DeceptiCON Establishment that holds court on Fox News, terrestrial talk radio, most of the tea party and think tanks that cover the east coast like a skin cancer. Rove infamously called the Iraq War an experiment worthy of the trillions spent and thousands of lives and limbs destroyed or ended. Now the Dark Lord openly wishes for Congressman Todd Akin's murder. According to Business Week:
"On the final morning of the Republican National Convention, Karl Rove took the stage at the Tampa Club to provide an exclusive breakfast briefing to about 70 of the Republican Party’s highest-earning and most powerful donors. During the more than hour-long session, Rove explained to an audience dotted with hedge fund billionaires and investors—including John Paulson and Wilbur Ross—how his super PAC, American Crossroads, will persuade undecided voters in crucial swing states to vote against Barack Obama. He also detailed plans for Senate and House races, and joked, “We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!”
Then Rove pleaded with his audience for more money—much more."
With friends like Rove in The Industry who needs enemies? The website WND has posted several articles on Roves mafia talk and Eagle Forum leader Phyllis Schlafly has demanded Rove remove himself from party politics, but that's the point. The Industry NEEDS men like Rove and Soros to keep it well funded like the stock market. Politics has evolved into a multi-trillion Industry where competitors duel it out for the privilege of redistributing the booty stolen from the citizenry via payroll & excise taxes, call it a "Roveocracy." Schlafly correctly asserts Rove's DeceptiCON creds:
"This stunning attack on Akin is now reported as a joke. Sorry, Karl, it isn’t funny to joke about murdering a Congressman.
Rove has disliked Akin ever since Akin was one of the principled members of the U.S. House who voted against George W. Bush’s extravagant expansion of Medicare when the vote was called at 5:53 am in November 2003. Akin is a man of principle who doesn’t cave in to political pressure, so he’s not Rove’s kind of politician.
Rove tried to excuse his obscene joke by saying he would not have said it if he had known a reporter was in the room. That makes his statement worse! Is murder the kind of secret political advice Rove gives to Republican donors and candidates who hire him?"
Indeed. Alas not only will Rove survive his latest slip of the truth, the Dark Lord will remain as The Architect of redistribution masquerading as "conservatism" and all engaged and supportive of the scam are as guilty crime as Bernie Madoff is.
